What is a Dead Drop?
Started by Berlin based media artist Aram Bartholl, Dead Drops is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space.
USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs around the world and everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop.
Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation. If you want to install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures.
